The history between America and its treatment of minority groups is not hidden or erased from our present. The truth of it is an everyday matter that each part of our nation deals with in different ways. Boston's police force is not exempt from its own past and is no stranger to racial discrimination within its community. It is evident that their is a schism in law enforcement treatment between minority groups, particularly African Americans, and the Boston Police. From the statistics shown, the BPD has consistently stopped minorities at higher rates and throughout the time span of the report made no documented arrests. The BPD calls these FIOFS (field interrogation, observation frisk/search) reports. They acknowledge there is an alarming racial disparity within FIOFS reports they contribute this difference to focusing on high crime areas. However, while it is with good intention to focus on high crime areas there is a distinction to be made with building a connection with the community to prevent crime and becoming an oppressor of the community and planting the seeds of distrust within all of its members. For example, in this one most recent video of a white Boston police officer and a young black Roxbury male.
